Riassunto: Ask anyone traveling through his neck of the Alaskan Bush?Tom Brion of Bentalit Lodge is a natural-born storyteller. An off-the-grid lodge owner in Fish Lakes, Alaska, Tom enthralls roomfuls of guests from the Lower 48 and around the world with tales of his adventures, foibles, and SNAFUs from his 44 years of living in the Alaskan wilderness. A biography in the form of short life stories, Tom Brion?s memoir takes us to a rural Bush life where people live off the land, drill their own wells, put out their own forest fires, catch salmon with a wheel, and depend on their neighbors to pick up their mail. From his start as a Pennsylvania farmboy who ran off to join the United States Air Force, to his arrival in Alaska with less than a hundred dollars in his wallet and a growing family in his back seat, to his forty years as a Bush pilot and his accidental introduction to the fishing lodge business, to his multiple brushes with death, hardship, and questionable characters, Tom has a story to cover it all. Sit back and enjoy these humorous?and sometimes heart-wrenching?tales of hunting and exploring the backcountry of Alaska from the pilot?s seat of a Vietnam-era Cessna Birddog. Follow Tom in this (mostly) nonfiction anthology of (somewhat) true stories from the Last Frontier as he gives the straight scoop about bears, outhouses, farming, flooding, fishing, moose, guns, and aviation in the 49th State. A pioneer in sustainable homesteading, Tom Brion built his first fishing lodge in 1979, and continues to this day building and working heavy machinery 60 miles from any road. An avid outdoorsman and jack of all trades, Tom documents his life with photos and illustrations that detail an epic adventure from start to finish.
